Assessments draw a neural map of the client. Like other maps, the assessment map is the starting point from which the coach and the client develop a roadmap for the coaching relationship.  We work together to take who you are (embedded experiences and abilities) and develop what you need.  And what you need can range from simple brainstorming in a trusted environment to complex issues of Leadership, Relationships, Performance, Communications, Awareness, Team Growth, Continuity, Organizational Develop and Corporate Forensics.

Assessment or 360 feedback processes often overlook the opportunity to leverage the 360.  Although the 360 is designed for objective feedback from superiors, peers and subordinates, it is the direct manager who typically reviews the 360.  That said the results are skewed by managers point of view. As such the review will focus on what is wrong or needs improvement.

Through Feedback Coaching we focus on a. what’s working, b. how to do more of it and c. what areas does the employee want to improve. Coaching employees through feedback gains agreement of performance and development goals.  Agreeing on what good will look like sets up the next feedback coaching session for success.

Performance is the newest area of Feedback Coaching.  This program could include Impact providing the feedback to a manager and well as transferring feedback techniques to the manager to be used with their direct reports.

As in the previous application of feedback coaching, performance improves through feedback through eliminating the focus on negative and too much direction.  Feedback coaching is simply less telling and more listening.  The focus is on a. what’s working, b. how to do more of it, c. what’s not working, and d. do I need to stop doing what’s not working or improve my competencies.
